I moved here from Massachusetts in April of 2006. Received a nice retirement bonus in May 2006. Massachusetts decided it was taxable income to them. It is important that you are legally moved to Florida. Your thoughts of permanently moved may not pass all tests.

Make sure all subsequent income does not have tax from a prior state deducted. Could be hard to get back.

Recent news story Cuomo stated that his tax revenue is down because so many people have left NY. Cuomo specifically mentioned they went to low tax states such as Florida.

Some SCREAM tax the rich. I was never rich. On my best years, on my last dollars, I paid 56% fed, 13% to social security (self employed). 6% to NY State, ?? 3% NY City Commuter tax, 10,000 real estate tax on a 1200 sq foot home on a 50x100 lot. Oh my auto insurance is roughly half what it was in NY. Hear in the Villages both our home and our property are almost twice what we had in NY. Our cost of living is FAR LOWER. Truth NY does have better Pizza and bagels. Florida water? Another debate.

Re: your taxes. My view, we hire a pro. Yes, you can use inexpensive programs and more and more people do. Is it worth it? It is like most things freedom of choice. If, there is an IRS inquiry, audit, who do you think is better able to handle it John Smith citizen f the villages or John Smith CPA?

Steve, my advice to you is not to solicit tax advice on a message board. At best you are getting tax advice from people who may or may not have a clue as to what they are talking about, and even if they do, can you imagine telling the IRS "but I got this advice from TOTV"? The IRS has help lines, and you can also get an appointment for free tax advice on-line from Villages Tax-Aide.
